In the aftermath of Tom Aspinall's decisive win against Alexander Volkov at UFC London this past weekend, Michael Bisping offered his take on his compatriot's prospects against UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou.
While in conversation with Anthony Smith on the latest edition of the Believe You Me podcast, 'The Count' argued that Aspinall has a half-decent shot at overcoming the challenge presented by Ngannou inside the octagon.
"I'm not saying right here, right now, that [Tom Aspinall] beats Francis Ngannou. I'm saying there's a really good f***ing chance he beats Francis Ngannou. I mean, if it stays on the feet and Ngannou, we know. I don't need to finish the sentence. I don't even need to finish that he is extremely dangerous. But the well-roundedness of him I think just sets him apart from everyone else."
Michael Bisping further waxed lyrical about the possibility of Aspinall dominating in professional boxing, should he ever decide to switch things up. He referenced the time Aspinall spent working on his striking with heavyweight titleholder Tyson Fury.
"Tom could go into boxing and dominate there as well, you know. It's unbelievable how talented he is."
